Difficulty changes depending on where you are. People living anywhere from Maine to Georgia will have an easier time because the Appalachian Trail runs somewhere in your state. Also, depending on which state you're in the difficulty changes.
I would love to thru-hike the AT one day, but that's not quite possible right now. I dayhike frequently near my home in Virginia that's how I came up with this idea. What I would like for you to do is:
- Find a directional or mileage sign on the AT. Take a picture of it with your GPS. Document the coordinates at the sign.
- An alternative to #1 is to find a trail head, and take a picture of the AT sign/logo that designates the trailhead. Same thing applies with the coordinates.
- A third thing I'd like for you to do, if possible is to note the name of the nearest town. If you can, take a picture of their sign or post office.
- A fourth option is to find a shelter on the AT, take a picture of yourself or your GPS (if you're like me and hate having pictures take of you.) Document the coordinates for the shelter.
I'm going to keep this locationless up and running for a while, so tell your friends!!! I'm appreciative to all that have posted so far!!! Please only log this cache one time, so that others may have an opportunity.
